Ghost shrimp babies! W/pics

So about a year ago, I got ~4 ghost shrimp and added them to my brackish crab tank. They made and excellent clean up crew, and I pretty much left them alone to do their thing since. I recently remembered that I hadn't seen then in a while, so I went to take a look, and this is what u found: the original parents have grown HUGE(for ghost shrimp), and have been quite busy. I saw at least six 1/4in baby ghost shrimp swimming around. I was pretty surprised that they reproduced and grew to adulthood, in brackish at that. Here's some pics(kinda blurry, they were super fast):

That streak is one of the parents. He's the same size as one of my fiddlers.
